Annoying delay when re-focusing a tab

On tab click/focus, the sourcetree wants to refresh. This is anoying if the refresh lasts 10 seconds everytime.

When I have multiple tabs, and one repo is showing up, then, if I go to another tab and then return to the original one I'd expect to see EXACTLY what was being displayed before the tab was hidden. This also happens if I go to another application. It seems an "onFocus" hook.

I'd expect to behave the exact same way that if I have a browser: I don't have to "reload the page" each time I re-focus the tab in the browser. I just go and see what was there before the focus-out.

Then if I want the latest changes, I'd press F5 or so to "force" a refresh.

Is this behaviour disableable?

I currently disabled:

[ ] Refresh automatically when files change
[ ] Refresh when acpplication is not in focus

But I'd need one saying "Refresh on focus again" to disable it.

How can I handle this?
